    • Narratives of Sámi School History in Finland: The Histories of Assimilation Made Visible 

      Nyyssönen, Jukka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      This article analyses narratives that have been produced about the Sámi school experience in Finland. The sources consist of studies in Sámi school history and history of education in Finland, as well as in pedagogical studies made since the 1980s, comparing the narratives found in each case. The narrative of assimilation dominates the field for good, historically verifiable reasons. This genre of ...
    • Natural selection shaped the rise and fall of passenger pigeon genomic diversity 

      Murray, Gemma G.R.; Soares, André E.R.; Novak, Ben J.; Schaefer, Nathan K.; Cahill, James A.; Baker, Allan J.; Demboski, John R.; Doll, Andrew; Da Fonseca, Rute R.; Fulton, Tara L.; Gilbert, Marcus Thomas Pius; Heintzman, Peter D.; Letts, Brandon; McIntosh, George; O'Connell, Brendan L.; Peck, Mark; Pipes, Marie-Lorraine; Rice, Edward S.; Santos, Kathryn M.; Sohrweide, A. Gregory; Vohr, Samuel H.; Corbett-Detig, Russell B.; Green, Richard E.; Shapiro, Beth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-17)
      The extinct passenger pigeon was once the most abundant bird in North America, and possibly the world. Although theory predicts that large populations will be more genetically diverse, passenger pigeon genetic diversity was surprisingly low. To investigate this disconnect, we analyzed 41 mitochondrial and 4 nuclear genomes from passenger pigeons and 2 genomes from band-tailed pigeons, which are ...
    • Naturbasert gårdsturisme - utfordringer og muligheter 

      Haugen, Marit S.; Brandth, Berit; Kramvig, Britt (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2010)
    • Negotiating with the public - a new role for ethnographic museums? 

      Bjørklund, Ivar; Brantenberg, Odd t; Eidheim, Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Indigenous peoples, like the Sami of Fenno-Scandinavia, continue to be the object of museum display in ethnographic museums. Most of these exhibits focus predominantly on culture history via objects that reveal the quality and richness of indigenous cultures, with less emphasis on the political struggles that indigenous peoples are involved in. This paper is a reflection on the experiences in ...
    • New developments in biotechnology and IPR in aquaculture : are they sustainable? 

      Myhr, Anne Ingeborg; Rosendal, Kristin; Olesen, Ingrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The objective of this chapter is to give an overview and analysis of the current trends and developments in biotechnology in aquaculture research and management. The technological developments along with structural changes in the aquaculture sector may affect access and intellectual property rights (IPR) regimes. These issues will be discussed in a wide perspective involving both short and long-term ...
    • New Developments in Russian Regulation of Navigation on the Northern Sea Route 

      Solski, Jan Jakub (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      The regime of navigation on the Northern Sea Route (NSR) is still largely based on legislation adopted by the Soviet Union, and features certain deviations in the way Russia’s international legal rights and obligations are implemented. In recent years the Russian Federation has demonstrated interest in revising NSR legislation with the preparation of one single comprehensive Federal Act on the NSR, ...
    • A new genus of horse from Pleistocene North America 

      Heintzman, Peter D.; Zazula, Grant D.; MacPhee, Ross D. E.; Scott, Eric; Cahill, James A.; McHorse, Brianna K.; Kapp, Joshua D.; Stiller, Mathias; Wooller, Matthew J.; Orlando, Ludovic; Southon, John R.; Froese, Duane G.; Shapiro, Beth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-28)
      The extinct ‘New World stilt-legged’, or NWSL, equids constitute a perplexing group of Pleistocene horses endemic to North America. Their slender distal limb bones resemble those of Asiatic asses, such as the Persian onager. Previous palaeogenetic studies, however, have suggested a closer relationship to caballine horses than to Asiatic asses. Here, we report complete mitochondrial and partial nuclear ...
    • A new interpretation of the sedimentary cover in the western Siljan Ring area, central Sweden, based on seismic data. 

      Juhlin, Christoffer; Sturkell, Erik; Ebbestad, Jan Ove R.; Lehnert, Oliver; Högström, Anette; Meinhold, Guido (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Two new reflection seismic profiles over the Paleozoic successions of the western part of the Siljan Ring impact structure show a contrasting seismic signature. The more southerly c. 10 km long Mora profile reveals a highly disturbed structure, with only a few kilometers of relatively horizontally layered structures observed. However, interpretations of refracted arrivals in the data, that can be ...
    • New occurrences of Palaeopascichnus from the Stáhpogieddi Formation, Arctic Norway, and their bearing on the age of the Varanger Ice Age. 

      Jensen, Sören; Högström, Anette; Høyberget, Magne; Meinhold, Guido; McIlroy, Duncan; Ebbestad, Jan Ove R.; Taylor, Wendy L.; Agic, Heda; Palacios, Teodoro (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-18)
      We report on new occurrences of the late Ediacaran problematicum <i>Palaeopascichnus</i> (Protista?) from the Stáhpogieddi Formation, Arctic Norway. The stratigraphically lowest occurrences are in beds transitional between the Lillevannet and Indreelva members: the highest in the second cycle of the Manndrapselva Member, stratigraphically close to the lowest occurrences of Cambrian-type trace fossils. ...
    • A new species of the haematophagous genus Austroconops Wirth & Lee (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae: Leptoconopinae) from middle Cretaceous amber of Charente-Maritime, France 

      Dominiak, Patrycja; Szadziewski, Ryszard; Nel, Andre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-20)
      <i>Austroconops perrichoti</i>, a new species of biting midge (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae), is described from uppermost Albian-lowermost Cenomanian amber of Charente-Maritime (NW France), from three female specimens. A similar species, <i>Austroconops borkenti</i> Szadziewski & Schlüter, 1992, from Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian, French amber of Anjou, is redescribed and illustrated. A key to males and ...
    • Nordlysobservatoriet 50 år 

      Holt, Olav; Solheim, Jan-Erik; Brekke, Asgeir (Book; Bok, 1980)
      Nordlysobservatoriet i Tromsø ble høytidelig innviet 6. august 1930. Et 25-års jubileum ble markert med en tilstelning 30. juli 1955. Ved 25-års jubileet i 1955 ble det utarbeidet et festskrift - men det var ikke penger til å få det trykt. Desto gledeligere er det at vi til 50-års jubileet får anledning til et spesialhefte av OTTAR for å beskrive Nordlysobservatoriets historie og virksomhet, et hefte ...
    • Nordvegen på Hillesøy - Utgravning av båtgrav fra yngre jernalder 

      Niemi, Anja Roth (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2018-03-01)
      Sommeren 2017 ble det funnet bein etter menneske spredt på en påbegynt vegtrasé ovenfor Nordvegen på Hillesøy på sørvest-sida av Kvaløya utenfor Tromsø. Den arkeologiske undersøkelsen viste at beina stammer fra en båtgrav fra yngre jernalder. Litt over halve båten var fortsatt bevart, mens resten var ødelagt av anleggsarbeidet. I den bevarte delen lå fortsatt bekken og underkropp på plass. Båten var ...
    • Nyelv Nedre Vest. Utgravning av hustufter og boplass fra yngre steinalder 

      Niemi, Anja Roth; Oppvang, Janne (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2018-01-09)
      Prosjektet ble iverksatt som konsekvens av reguleringsplan for bygging av ny bru over Nyelv og utbedring av tilstøtende deler av E6. På Gressbakken Nedre Øst lå det berørte området rett ved eksisterende vegskjæring, hvor mye av opprinnelig terreng allerede var fjernet i forbindelse med tidligere vegbygging. Det ble foretatt en mindre undersøkelse her, uten at det framkom funn eller andre indikasjoner ...
    • Ocean climate and egg investment in the black-legged kittiwake Rissa tridactyla. 

      Barrett, Robert T.; Erikstad, Kjell E.; Reiertsen, Tone (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-09-14)
      Birds allocate substantial resources to their eggs during the laying period, resources also needed for other concurrent costly processes such as mate acquisition, nest building and site defence. Egg and clutch sizes may thus vary in response to food availability prior to egg laying. We investigated the variation in egg and clutch size of black-legged kittiwakes Rissa tridactyla in a North Norwegian ...
    • On a new species of Amphilochus from deep and cold Atlanic waters, with a note on the genus Amphilochopsis (Amphipoda, Gammaridea, Amphilochidae) 

      Tandberg, Anne Helene S.; Vader, Wim (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-23)
      <i>Amphilochus manudens</i> and <i>Amphilochopsis hamatus</i> are redescribed based on specimens from the BioIce, Mareano, and IceAGE programmes. Te new species <i>Amphilochus anoculus</i> <b>sp. n.</b> is described based on material from the IceAGE programme and the preceding BioIce programme; it is separated from the closely related <i>Amphilochus manudens</i> by the absence of eyes, a ...
    • On the polar edge: the status of the northern gannet (Morus bassanus) in the Barents Sea in 2015-2016. 

      Barrett, Robert T.; Strøm, H.; Melnikov, Mikhail (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-27)
      During its population recovery in the North Atlantic in the early 1900s, the northern gannet (Morus bassanus) established its first colony in Norway at Runde in 1946. Since the 1960s, gannets have established (and later abandoned) several small colonies in the north of the country. These colonies have been regularly monitored, and in 2015–16 ca. 3300 apparently occupied nests (AON) were counted ...
    • Optimal foraging in chick-raising Common Guillemots (Uria aalge) 

      Bugge, Julie; Barrett, Robert T.; Pedersen, Torstein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The Norwegian population of the Common Guillemot Uria aalge has declined by > 95% since the 1960s, and is classified as critically endangered in the Norwegian Red List. Much of the recent decline has been attributed to reduced food availability, but without extensive documentation of adult diet. Instead, chick diet has been considered a proxy of adult diet during the breeding season in many Norwegian ...
    • Orthopoxvirus DNA in Eurasian Lynx, Sweden 

      Tryland, Morten; Okeke, Malachy Ifeanyi; Hård af Segerstad, Carl; Mörner, Torsten; Traavik, Ingemar Terje; Ryser-Degiorgis, Marie-Pierre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Cowpox virus, which has been used to protect humans against smallpox but may cause severe disease in immunocompromised persons, has reemerged in humans, domestic cats, and other animal species in Europe. Orthopoxvirus (OPV) DNA was detected in tissues (lung, kidney, spleen) in 24 (9%) of 263 free-ranging Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) from Sweden. Thymidine kinase gene amplicon sequences (339 bp) from ...

    • Paleoekolgiska undersökningar i samband med utvidgelse av E8 i Lavangsdalen 

      Sjøgren, Per Johan E (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2013)
      Inför utvidgelsen av E8 i Lavangsdalen identifierades två fredade samiska kulturminneslokaliteter (Sametinget 2011) vilka delvis eller helt skulle förstöras i samband med utbyggningen och krävde vidare undersökningar. Det rörde sig om kulturspår från samisk renskötsel vilket i första hand gav sig uttryck som förändringar i dagens vegetation. För att få en förståelse av hur långt tillbaka i tiden den ...
